If you have not read the Casca by Barry Sadler -do so! Barry wrote most of them and several other books after he left the army. He got a punji stake in the leg and almost lost it while on patrol in Vietnam. The Casca series follows the Roman soldier (Casca) who drove a spear into Jesus while he was on the cross. Casca was cursed and can’t die until he meets Jesus again. He wanders through history as a soldier and gets wounded all the time but has to live and keep soldiering. There are over 25 books and Barry wrote most of them. After he died in Guatamala other authors have kept writing the books. You can check out the series at www.Casca.net Many are out of print, but can be found on Ebay and amazon. The new ones are available at the website, take a look.
